"Wendy is very professional and responsive. We appreciated her positive attitude and patience in helping us find the right home for us. She represented us well throughout both the buying and selling process. This was our first time selling a house and she helped us every step of the way to ensure we could sell our home quickly. Can't recommend Wendy enough!"
"We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Wendy and her team. We were first-time home buyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. Wendy was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what we were looking for. All throughout the process Wendy was there to assist with any issues that may have risen. From start to finish she was very responsive, kind and a constant professional. She was very responsive to our needs and was always available when we needed her to be. I would highly recommend Wendy to family and friends."

To be pre-approved, the lender will pull your credit and ask you for documentation to verify your finances. Before making an offer on a house, it is best to get pre-approved to show sellers your offer is serious and that a lender has already approved you for enough money to purchase the home.
Determine the features you are looking for in your ideal home and prioritize which items are most important to you. No house is perfect, but this will help us find the best match for you.
When we have found a home that you're interested in buying, we will quickly and strategically place an offer. Once the seller has accepted your offer you're officially under contract. Closing day is the final step of the buying process and you officially own your dream home!
